The New York Jets started the expected purging of their roster this afternoon, cutting four veterans and waiving another player. The moves made this afternoon now save the Jets a reported $32 million against the salary cap in 2013. The next question for the cash-strapped Jets is, when do they cut quarterback Tim Tebow? Tebow is currently under contract for the 2013 season for $2.5 million, but his days in New York are over. As if they ever began.
I realize that someone in the Jets front office might think that Tebow has trade value, but every football fan around the world, not to mention every front office of the remaining 31 other NFL teams all realize that he will be cut. Just go ahead and make the move.
